Antique photo, above: The Mau Mau Uprising (also known as the Mau Mau Revolt, Mau Mau Rebellion and the Kenya Emergency) was a military conflict that took place in Kenya[B] between 1952 and 1960. It involved a Kikuyu-dominated anti-colonial group called Mau Mau and elements of the British Army, auxiliaries and anti-Mau Mau Kikuyu. The movement was violently repressed and failed to capture widespread public support. The capture of rebel leader Dedan Kimathi on 21 October 1956 signaled the ultimate defeat of the Mau Mau uprising, and essentially ended the British military campaign.
